#Quote
1Where I'm from, there is no violence, pretty much.
2You can get beat any day.
3I really don't have a favorite meal. I eat anything.
4I like music a lot.
5I just love dancing.
6I don't think about records.
7My coach told me if I broke the national record for the 200, I could run a 100.
8I don't put myself under pressure.
9My relationship with everyone in Jamaica is good.
10But if I keep my core and back strong, the scoliosis doesn't really bother me.
11I have matured a lot.
12My brother is really, really slow.
13I have dedicated my life to the 200m, I really love the 200m a lot.
14Sometimes you lose sight of what's going on around you.
15I wouldn't say I'm a phenomenon, just a great athlete.
16People like to see showdowns.
17I remember once, actually the first race I ran, I fell.
18It's always a wake-up call to get beaten.
19Repeating is harder than anything else.
20I will run against anybody.
21If you think about racing too much you may just lose it a little bit.
22My hunger is always there.
23I don't read a lot of books.
24I try to lead by example.
25I don't know the history of my sport. I'm not like those people who know everything.
26I like to have fun, just stay relaxed.
27I don't like losing anyways.
28It's a great feat for me to have broken my world record.
29I know what to do and I go and execute.
30Every season, for me, it's like starting from scratch again.
31If you're the Olympic champion then they have to wait four more years to get you again.
32I think my acceleration is very good. That's the key for me.
33Once a year I will clean my room, just because I feel I should.
34But anybody who steps into the lane beside you is the biggest competition because they made it to the finals.
35I've worked hard over the years, I've been injured and I've worked hard through it, and I've made it.
36I would rather be lying in a bed than changing one.
37If Queen Elizabeth knighthooded me and I would get the title Sir Usain Bolt. That sounds very nice.
38Come on... when you're running, if you see you're going to win, you're going to celebrate.
39When people see your personality come out, they feel so good, like they actually know who you are.
40Track and field was very big when I was growing up.
41I was playing cricket first and my cricket coach was the one that introduced me to track and field.
42I don't think limits.
43You have good days and bad days.
44I can't really live outside Jamaica. I can be away, but only for a while.
45People always say I'm a legend, but I'm not. Not until I've defended my Olympic titles. That's when I've decided I'll be a legend.
46If I get to be a legend, I've achieved my goal.
47I don't even like to go out onto the streets sometimes because I can't get anything done. People want pictures and autographs all the time.
48I'd like to say to all my fans out there, thanks for the support. And to all my doubters, thank you very much because you guys have also pushed me.
49Manners is the key thing. Say, for instance, when you're growing up, you're walking down the street, you've got to tell everybody good morning. Everybody. You can't pass one person.
50I've learned over the years that if you start thinking about the race, it stresses you out a little bit. I just try to relax and think about video games, what I'm gonna do after the race, what I'm gonna do just to chill. Stuff like that to relax a little before the race.
51All I have to do is to work on transition and technique.
52I really want to try soccer after I retire because I've watched football over the years and I think I could be a good contender.
53For me, I'm focused on what I want to do. I know what I need to do to be a champion, so I'm working on it.
54There are better starters than me but I'm a strong finisher.
55As long as I'm in great shape, nobody beats me, for sure.
56A lot of legends, a lot of people, have come before me. But this is my time.
57I know what I can do so it doesn't bother me what other people think or their opinion on the situation.
58My name is Bolt, Lightning Bolt.
59There are things that bother me. I try not to let them, but they do.
60Yeah, I am lazy. There's no doubt about that.
61I work hard, and I do good, and I'm going to enjoy myself. I'm not going to let you restrict me.
62You do not want to get married at 22! Especially if you're famous, because girls are going to be throwing themselves at you.
